Retiring from One Phase of Life to Another
by Gladys M Brown
(Guthrie Oklahoma USA)
My name is Gladys and I retired six years ago with so much excitement I shouted it out to the world. I love not being on a schedule but like many others I feel something is missing from my life.
My main concern is staying active so I enjoy going to church being surrounded by my church family. Since I am a retired Musician, I am still asked occasionally for my services by other churches.
All my children live close to me so I am blessed, so I spend more time writing poetry and short stories which is my hobby. I have self published three children books and was recently honored at two Banquets for my books which gave me a chance to get all dressed up.
I just try to stay focused and thankful to live one day at a time.
